Friend of mine had a rear flat on his KLR. Eh, it happens.
So upon inspection we found most of a house key. Hm, that's interesting. We found a corresponding scuffed spot in the tube, but no hole...?
Upon further inspection, we found the old nail that actually punctured the tube and caused the flat.
It's a little like radiology -- don't stop looking just because you found one problem...
Another friend of mine a while back got a rear flat from, well, an ordinary rock. Out of all the billions of pieces of gravel and rock he had traversed, one piece about an inch long somehow managed to stab right through the tire.
